Sabbatical

23 comments


Hi All

I’ve decided to take a two week sabbatical from GoY… and then decide whether I want to be part of anymore. I recognise that change is necessary but I feel there has been far to much change on GoY recently.I’m not happy with all the changes Peter and Ajay have instigated and, sorry guys, can only see them as cash cow decisions.

I have also found the attitude of some GoYers whom, it seems to me, would prefer to argue that black is white than accept there is another point of view than there own saddening.

Please do not respond to this… I will not read and will not respond to any PM’s.

Equally please do not PM Bulbaholic!

Sadly MG

MG...sorry, but I have to respond. I appreciate your need to take 2 weeks off, and really hope you will come back soon.
GoY to me, is the sum total of all it's parts...ie all the members! If just one goes missing, then it's not the same :((
Very best wishes to you and Mr Moonbulb....xx
P.S. No need to respond...just hope you read this.

I'm with Moongrower on this - I'm not taking a sabbatical, but I am considering whether to stay or go, for slightly different reasons, but certainly to do with the way the site is run.

I think that after Friday several of us may be considering our position here.

I've considered - I'm staying, on balance, the good still outweighs the bad, most of the time, and that's probably all you can ask for, really.

You can work for change from within an organisation but it is much more difficult from without.

Aye, ain't that the truth - I'll keep trying;-)

Goodness me! How awful that someone has been so upset by something (I know not what) on this site. I do hope that Moongrower comes back.How sad. I have found this site to be so friendly; it is always the few that spoil it for the many.

I wondered if anyone could enlighten me as to the changes that have been made to the site as I have not heard of any and would, obviously, like to be 'in the know'.

I do hope that you will reconsider your input is sadly missed In the short time i've been here i've come to value both you and Bamboo as extremly clever and experienced gardeners and lovely people(thinking about that blog when we rmembered the old days---including the mushy peas! )I don't really understand what has been going on but the 'powers that be' seem to be trying so maybe...

Okay I have taken my space and will respond to questions I feel able to... Though I still feel the need to peace and focus on me

Welcome back from me too, MG - it's been quiet without you, lol. I was wondering yesterday - for the two weeks were up then (not that I was counting or anything...)

19 Dec, 2009

 

Well I'm back but will remain low profile for now... I always need space in the run up to the shortest day - time to reflect and move on. Sadly it seems that others have left whilst I took my 'break'. I have found a new addiction Farmville on Facebook so if anyone else is playing let me know so we can be neighbours :-)
